Seven tornadoes hit northern Italy

One tornado struck a small Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea, killing two people and injuring several.

Firefighters reported that a tornado struck Pantelleria, south of Sicily. These islands are popular with vacationers.

The Italian news agency ANSA reported that the victims were identified as residents of the island, a firefighter working on the island and an 86-year-old man. The victims were in different cars, among about 10 vehicles that were flipped through the air by the force of the tornado. At least one car landed on its roof and another on the destroyed front end.

The mayor of Pantelleria, Vincenzo Vittorio Campo, told Sky TV channel TG24 that nine people were hurt, including two seriously injured.

Another tornado was confirmed during a thunderstorm north of Modena.
